  • Final Evaluation La'Nya Foster, of Riverdale (GA) Riverdale Middle School, is a 5'8 144lb 2023 prospect from our Fall 2018 ATL camp. College coaches on camp staff identified La'Nya as having division 1 potential. La'Nya has elite level wingspan that makes the player a corner stone on the defensive end and can be even more effective with active hands/feet. Additionally, the prospect appears to have great positional size when used properly remains very advantageous on both sides of the ball. The very talented passer does a fantastic job distributing and seeing the floor. The player is always anticipating when and where teammates will be open, a highly coveted trait in the team sport. In terms of ball handling, the prospect showed a great handle and is on the way to being a primary ball handler. Basketball IQ was one of the player's greatest strengths routinely making the right play at the right time. There was a great emphasis on making the right play, which will be a big advantage in recruiting and separating from others. A big part of IQ is shot selection. La'Nya almost always shoots the ball with great space and in-rhythm. This advantage will continue to develop by watching how this is done at various college levels. Making the extra pass and taking only open in-rhythm shots proved to be an extremely reliable asset for the prospect and will be a joy for college to coach this understanding and skill. The prospect was able to consistently knock down shots during camp showing to be a reliable asset. Shooting will continue to develop with form shooting and made game speed repetitions. We recommend making at least 500 game speed shots a day off the screen(curl/fades), off the bounce, spot shooting, etc. The talent did a tremendous job of finishing around the rim through various moves. The prospect showed great ability with both hands and has the potential to finish on any defense. The talented player is an exceptional athlete proving to be an advantage on both ends of the floor having athleticism that is in the upper quartile of competitors. The prospect is very strong for their age. The college game is an entirely different beast so continued strength development is crucial to prepare going against 23-24 year-olds. Combined with the player's great frame, the player will be ahead of schedule in terms of being physically ready to play at the next level. The talent has a non-stop relentless motor that really impressed our on staff college coaches during camp. This is a skill college coaches highly covet and will be blown away watching the talented prospect and from what we saw, the player had a physical and mental toughness that will be coveted at the next level. The player showed excellence on the defensive side of the ball and exemplified individual and team defensive concepts that we highlighted at camp. La'Nya has division 1 potential with continued hard work and development both in the classroom and on the hardwood. Can play the 2. AAU Team: Ga. Pearl Elite 2023.
